Information for Educators

Skagit Valley College’s College in the High School (CHS) program is a cooperative program between local school districts and Skagit Valley College (SVC). This dual credit program allows 9th through 12th grade students the opportunity to earn SVC college credit while simultaneously earning high school credit in approved high school courses. CHS courses are taught by qualifying high school teachers who work closely with SVC faculty liaisons to ensure that the course objectives and instructional strategies are consistent with those used in the equivalent course at SVC. Students who enroll in the program will have their coursework posted to an SVC transcript with the grade they earned in the course. For a comprehensive list of program requirements and standards, please review the College in the High School Teacher Handbook. Instructors who are interested in applying to teach for SVC’s CHS program should review the articulation process outlines in the Teacher Handbook: CHS-Teacher-Handbook
